    How to encourage bristlenose plecos to breed?

    Hi! I LOVE plecos, I think they are the coolest looking fish and I really want a massive 6ft tank full of them. But space is limited, so I have a pair of bristlenose plecos, Pip and Penny.

    Plecos In A 10 Gallon

    I currently have a ten gallon tank with three adult male guppies in it. I've had the tank set up with fish for about two months now and it is starting to grow a large amount of algae. I was wondering if adding a type of dwarf pleco would be a good idea. I've read that the smaller ones...

    Feeding Rusty Pleco?

    I have a rusty pleco and am unsure what to feed him. So far he gets cucumber twice a week, algae wafers every night, for him and 6 corys, but the platys and tetras help themselves. I have tried apple, no success, he has a small piece of driftwood but doesn't seem very interested at the mo. Any...
